Interning with Pivot Desk throughout my college career drastically accelerated my business and personal development. I recommend every student gets an internship with a startup.

Early internships with Everlater and Flipboard were critical in gaining the skills needed to start my first company. For any student that has the ambition to create their own business, a great place to start is by interning for a startup.
